Petite Sirah, fighting the good fight is constant…
Sigh… yet another example of job security for me, as I just read from a Midwest source:
The Rhone is not the only home to this grape, though. There are some very good ones coming from Australia, where they call it Shiraz, and also from California, where they may call it Syrah or Shiraz. Just don’t confuse it with Petite Syrah, which is a different grape, even though it too is from the Rhône Valley.
The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau ruled about six years ago that there will be no more Petite Sirah with a “y.”
Heads up writers, as you help to educate.
I’ve been doing this for what… Twelve years now?
It takes a lot to turn a battleship around.
Issue number 2…
I just read again for the millionth time, I’m thinking, that “Petite Sirah is the distant relative of Petite Sirah.”
- Syrah (father) + Peloursin (mother) = Petite Sirah.
- It would be like saying you’re a distant relative of your dad and/or mom.
Just the basics here; and I’m thinking when I’m dead and gone, these things will be resolved.
